The 3rd London Chess Classic took place 3rd-12th December 2011. Vladimir Kramnik took clear first beating all the English players and drawing the remaining games. Hikaru Nakamura overtook Magnus Carlsen to take second place by beating Michael Adams in the final round. Luke McShane was in the chase for first in a difficult game against Vladimir Kramnik that went wrong in time trouble. All four gained rating points, everyone else lost them.

Kramnik takes clear first in 3rd London Chess Classic (9)

Vladimir Kramnik drew comfortably in his final round game against Levon Aronian to take clear first place in the 3rd London Chess Classic. Kramnik beat the four English players and drew with the rest. Magnus Carlsen could have caught his points total but he was held to a draw by Nigel Short. Luke McShane was drained from the effort of the day before and took a quick draw against Viswanathan Anand who said he would almost immediately be starting to prepare for his match in May against Gelfand. He called his recent results a "disaster" for which he had no explanation. Hikaru Nakamura took a lot of risks using the King's Gambit against Michael Adams but after the latter missed a win in time trouble Nakamura brought home the full point to finish second.
